My husband and I ate here one evening. We were given a prosecco on arrival and some nibbles. We ordered calmaretti for starter and taliglioni with pecorino cheese and pappardelle with ragu for main course with a bottle of water and half a carafe of house white wine. We couldn't resist the desserts which are shown on a sweet trolley,... More

Amazing food and excellent service. Prosecco and antipasto was offered on arrival at no extra charge and they finished off our meal by offering us their inhouse chocolate liqueur. The chef does the rounds and all the staff were very friendly

A busy and efficient restaurant, mostly patronised by tourists like ourselves. We enjoyed the prosecco on arrival, and can recommend the house red too. We ordered a pasta each and a salad to share, which was plenty of food. No need for secondi. The black pepper and truffle pasta was spectacular (from the specials menu). Our tiramisu was not the...

The pasta " Caramelle rosse al gorgonzola" was amazing! Lovely meal, service and atmosphere. We were a large group that received excellent service, with even a meal prepared that was not on the summer menu.

Our first time in Perugia, La Taverna restaurant location is secluded, but the food, the service, the feel of the restaurant, it transported us to another era. It was magical for us, felt we had our private restaurant Chef Claudio personal touch is inexplicable, if you are in Perugia you must eat there you’ll appreciate it and so will your... More

Greeted with warm smiles and seated with free Prosecco as an aperitif while we perused the menu. Everything we tried was delicious - salads, fish, pasta and desserts. I don't eat any meat (and avoid carbs) and found an excellent selection for my tastes too. Their gazpacho soup was an excellent starter. We finished our house wine before our main... More

Went here after reading great TA reviews which were well deserved. Food was amazing!. Had the gazpacho soup, which was excellent. Supplied with addition condiments to tailor it to your taste. I never saw that before. For dinner had the ravioli w/ black truffles, which I highly recommend. Very unique flavor. Finished w/ the chocolate mousse which was very good... More

If you're in Perugia, don't miss this awesome restaurant located in the Piazza Italia. Food was spectacular and the location was like your own little secluded piazza neighborhood. The chef/owner could not have been more welcoming and inviting. And, the chocolate liquor is indescribable!

When the hotel manager in Perugia recommended La Taverna as the best restaurant in town, he didn't know that we had planned to dine there based on trip advisor reviews. We were warmly greeted, seated, and served with smiles even though (according to Italian custom) it was early. We have enjoyed dining in many exceptional restaurants on Long Island and... More
